Fr. Stan’s Jubilee August 27th 

Fr. Stan is celebrating the 50th anniversary of his Ordination to the priesthood (Golden Jubilee) the weekend of August 26-27th. 

He will be saying a special mass at 3pm on Sunday, Aug 27th that we will all be singing/playing for (both choirs- whoever can attend) 

I am planning to rehearse with whomever can make it on Thursday, August 24th from 7-9pm in the church to get everything prepared. On the day of the mass (Sun Aug 27th) we’ll meet at 2:15pm to warm-up, pray and prepare for the Mass. We will NOT be singing for other masses that weekend (Just for the 3pm mass) so Contemporary Choir will not sing for the 11am mass that day– (Adult Choir will not sing for the 9am mass since they don’ usually sing anyway in the summer.) 

There are nice receptions after each of the regular masses that weekend (Wine and cheese after the 4pm, and special breakfasts/brunch after the 9am and 11am masses that weekend. Fr. Stan will be attending each of these receptions and would be glad to welcome anyone and everyone to congratulate him, etc. There is a separate ticketed dinner that at 5pm at Petruzello’s on Sunday, Aug 27th after the 3pm mass that you can attend if you’d like. There is a limited number of tickets available, so I can’t guarantee that everyone will be able to attend this event. Tickets are $80 per person ($160 per couple.) Someone in the music ministry has come forward and has offered to buy tickets for people who would really like to attend, but the cost would make it more difficult to attend for them. If that is the case for you (that you’d really like to attend the dinner, but you’d appreciate help with the ticket cost) then you can indicate that on the form that I’ll explain about below.   If you don’t think you’d like to attend the dinner, then there is no need to fill out the form. I already know of several of you who are just going to attend the special mass, and not attend the dinner. Any way you’d like to participate is ok. 

Below is the link if you’d like to put in your name to be considered to attend the dinner. (Space is limited for the dinner, so not everyone necessarily will be able to attend the dinner. Tickets are $80 per person, and there are only so many available because the hall can only accommodate 300 guests, and he has already invited more than 200 people (family friends, and staff).  This form lets me know that you’d like a ticket if they are available. Tickets are also being sold after all masses this weekend. (This is why Fr. Stan is having celebrations after each mass too, because he knows that not everyone will be able to attend the dinner because of space constraints.) 


Let me know if you have any questions.
